This is a pic from my gorgeous lunch plate today at a Japanese restaurant. Flower-shaped food are often seen when it is over- average bill in Japan.
This represents that you are a special guest for the restaurant, and that chef's skill is not simply judged by the taste itself but also by his hospitable mind to try to offer visual satisfaction to his guests.
Almost everything other than waterly, could be shaped into flowers after long process. When you happen to meet these beautiful dishes in Japan, Ｉrecommend that you post your pics on SNS.
